ASW warns ………
Multiple reports emerged today indicating that French Jews are ready to discard decades of distrust of the far right by voting for Marine Le Pen’s National Front as a bulwark against radical Islam.
14 per cent of France’s Jewish community is expected to back the National Front in presidential elections in 2017.
Roger Cukierman, chairman of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions (CRIF), publicly endorsed Marine Le Pen yesterday, insisting that her political leadership of the far-right party had been beyond reproach.
This is in stark contrast to the period the party was under Ms Le Pen’s father, Jean-Marie, with its antisemitic reputation.
……. and this is exactly the point!
If there is anything that our history has taught us it is that such nationalist groups are only ever looking for a temporary marriage of convenience to support and promote their own agenda. They are power hungry but to only serve their own ends. Nothing good for the Jewish community can come of such a union.
